Casa Pelon is right on the beach and the swimming is great--it's not a surfing beach, so not too many people around. The hosts, Wendy and Mark, are very relaxed and generous. The actual rooms are small, but the open common area is stupendous, with hammocks and a perfect view. The food is wonderful, and the smoked meat is awesome. Easy walking distance to a few restaurants. Cabs into town are a little expensive, but Mark will gladly give you a ride if he is headed that way. As others have mentioned, maybe not the best choice for neat freaks.
